New USB Port

A new dual port USB is available for electric models.

A spring-loaded cover helps to prevent corrosion and other failures caused by cleaning, spills, environmental effects, or other similar events. The new USB port also draws minimal current (<.001 amps) from the battery pack when not being used to charge a device or devices.
